San Antonio, TX’s The RK Group was tasked with delighting the palates of some of the most discerning catering and event executives in the U.S. and abroad. The occasion? A “Commissary Night” showcasing the many culinary facets that make up this Texas town’s distinctive character, the legacy of 75 years in business, as well as The RK Group’s incredible 140,000 square foot headquarters which houses much of its culinary, administrative, décor, floral, and support operations. What a stunner of a facility!
Guests took a progressive and guided tour through the complex, with passed appetizers, dinner stations, and libations all along the way. Fun surprises and incredible hospitality, coupled with an amazing ice carving contest to end the evening (see page 50 for more) left all in attendance with a most memorable experience.
“In 2017,” says Art Menchaca, Director of Business Development for The RK Group, and instigator of this beautiful evening, “San Antonio was designated a Creative City of Gastronomy by UNESCO, signifying the city’s status as an international culinary destination. Our culinary legacy is a confluence of cultures, but it isn’t just about Tex-Mex, it is also Tex-Next, where heritage meets culinary innovation.”
Take these delicious fete foods straight from the source for your next Tex-Mex themed gathering—no matter where your event is located—and your menu will be on trend!
